Love Me Beauty Box: September 2013.

Love Me Beauty* (formally known as BeautecoBox) is a beauty subscription box with a slight difference; not only are there a few boxes to choose from each month, the company also strives to be as environmentally friendly as possible with an entirely recyclable box and the lending of their support to various charities in order to promote a sustainable future for people and the planet. With a seemingly never-ending array of beauty box companies around at the moment, it's refreshing to see something a little bit different and their eco-friendly ethos is incredibly appealing.

Each month there are three boxes to choose from & you are able to opt for the one you like the look of the most, so even though this does take away the surprise element, you can be sure that the products are ones know you would like to try and you shouldn't be left with samples that will begin to pile up because you simply have no interest in them. It's also nice that you get to see exactly what's in every box so you won't be left feeling you didn't get your money's worth while thinking another version of the box that month was amazing & wishing you got that instead - no more box envy!

This month there were two products that were in every version of the box & the other three varied but they all seem to be incredibly well balanced and fair; there's no 'bad box', it's all personal preference. The two products featured in every box this month are the Matriskin Technology Collagen Serum and the Murad Osmolyte Tonic.

Matriskin Collagen Serum.
This is an incredibly pricey serum that promises to plump the skin and give a lifting effect without surgery. I can't really comment too much on those promises, but I can say this is an incredibly hydrating serum that feels beautiful on my skin and is something I know I'll be reaching for a lot when the weather gets that little bit colder. The full size price tag makes my heart race, I don't think I'll ever be able to afford to purchase so I'll certainly be making the most of this sample.

Murad Osmolyte Tonic.
This is a refreshing mist that promises to replenish and moisturise your skin with essential nutrients that increase cellular hydration leaving it plumped, firm and soothed. I've been spritzing this morning and evening directly after cleansing, it's incredibly refreshing - I do love a good face mist and I have noticed my skin feels less tight. One I will also be reaching for a lot during the winter months when my skin tends to be particularly dry. This 15ml sample is worth £10.

Anatomicals No Old Bags Allowed Eye Gel.
I've tried quite a few Anatomicals products over the past few months and I have to say, I've quite liked them all. This eye gel feels super cooling and refreshing, I've really been enjoying using this in the mornings, especially on those days where I feel like I just can't wake up. It doesn't seem to be a miracle worker, but it's a nice product and one I will almost certainly use up and probably repurchase. This is a full size and retails for £3.49.
The other options from Anatomicals are the Puffy the Eyebag Slayer eye mask (£3.50) and the Day & Night Spot Fix (£3.15)

Essential Care Organic Lip Silk.
I definitely didn't need another lip balm, but I've become a little obsessed with them in recent weeks so it's a very welcome addition to my make up bag. This is a completely organic lip balm with beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil and orange essential oils that nourishes, repairs and protects the lips in all weathers. It's super moisturising and it's the perfect base for lipsticks, I love it! This is a full size and retails for £5.50.
The other options from Essential Care are the Lemon & Tea Tree facial wash (£6) and the Gentle Herb shampoo (£3.50)

Nip + Fab Dry Leg Fix.
The final product is from Nip + Fab and it's my favourite product in this month's box. This intensively moisturising balm smoothes and soothes the skin to leave your legs feeling silky smooth. It really works and it has been my lifesaver over the past few days! This is a full size worth £10.25.
The alternative products from Nip + Fab in the other boxes are the Stiletto Fix (£9.95) and the Clean Fix Gel (£4.95).

Overall I'm really quite impressed with this month's offerings because I know I'll use every single product in the box. Love Me Beauty boxes retail for £10 plus £2.95 P&P. I'm certainly looking forward to seeing Love Me Beauty expand, I think they're on to a good thing here!

What do you think of this month's box?

  3. I was so put off my subscription boxes and its no secret that I am not a big fan of GB, but this company has got me wanting to subscribe. I like the idea of picking from 3 boxes & knowing what products you will receive. I am not a girl that likes surprises.
    Your box contains really good products. I would use all of these and I don't think I have ever said that about a beauty box before.

  9. I picked the same box this month and I love it to bits! Love Me Beauty have really got it spot on and I've not yet been disappointed by a box. I love that you can pick your favourite out of three options, so you never get box envy when you see what other people had in their boxes!

  10. I love the sound of the Murad toner, and the Nip + Fab product sounds lovely too.
    I've tried an Anatomicals eye cream in the past and found it really dried out the skin around my eyes, it was so strange! Glad you're liking this one better :)
